Response to What's your opinion compared to say MM & Floquil?

So far the only Tru-Color paints available here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area have been the railroad colors and some basic colors.

I expect it's going to behave much like Floquil after Testor changed the formula to eliminate the xylene of the original Floquil. Guess I better pick up a couple of bottles for a test drive.

My only reservation about Tru-Color is that it contains acetone and they recommend acetone for clean-up (but not for thinning; they have a proprietary thinner). Acetone is pretty smelly stuff, but I guess it's no smellier than xylene or MEK (not that I recommend taking a whiff of any of them). Tru-Color also recommends a fairly high air pressure (28-35 psi) for spraying, even though they say the paint can be sprayed right out of the bottle.

Tru-Color has an excellent FAQ page which should answer most questions:
